*clears throat* ANYWAY this month I read a grand total of 21 books! YAY!! Shall we get started? 'Cause this is going to be a long post.
-The Sleeper and the Spindle by Neil Gaimon, illustrated by Chris Riddell. This was a fantastic start to my 2016 reading year. The story was awesome, I loved the writing style, the cover was beautiful, and the illustrations were just the icing on the cake! 5/5 stars
- Snuff by Terry Pratchett. UGH so this book started off good, and then got worse and worse and worse. Don't get me wrong, I love Terry Prattchet's books. I have read a number of them, and all of them were really awesome...but this one just didn't do it for me. 2/5 stars.
-Cinder by Marissa Meyer. I loved this book! I adored it, it was amazing and such a cool twist on the story of Cinderella. Now I'm just waiting for the library to finally bring in the second book, Scarlet. 5/5 stars.
-The Winner's Curse by Marie Rutkoski. I really enjoyed this book! It was a very refreshing read. I'm waiting until the last book comes out to continue this trilogy, however, because I've heard that the cliff hanger in book 2 is a life-threat. 5/5 stars
-I read two John Green books: TFIOS and Looking For Alaska, both of which I adored. 5/5 stars each.
-Library of Souls by Ransom Riggs. ASFGHJKL I ADORED THIS BOOK! IT WAS EVERYTHING AND MORE THAT I COULD HAVE EVER WANTED FROM THE LAST BOOK IN THIS TRILOGY!!! I did a review for it here: http://lifeofamirkwoodelf.blogspot.ca/2016/01/library-of-souls-by-ransom-riggs-book.html
-In the Shadow of the Bear by Regina Doman. This is the first book in her Fairy Tale Retelling series. I liked this book, but I didn't love it. I actually got a signed copy of this book. 4 1/3 stars out of 5/5 stars.
-Black As Night by Regina Doman. I loved this book so much more than the first book. I got a signed copy of this book too. I did a spoiler free review for it here: http://lifeofamirkwoodelf.blogspot.ca/2016/01/black-as-night-by-regina-doman-spoiler.html
-I read the first three Harry Potter books...FINALLY. Needless to say I LOVED them. 5/5 stars for each.
-All The Bright Places by Jennifer Niven. I cannot express my love for this book. It was life-changing. I did a review for it here: http://lifeofamirkwoodelf.blogspot.ca/2016/01/all-bright-places-by-jennifer-niven.html
-What We Saw by Aaron Hartzler. While I liked this book, I didn't love it. I do think it is an important book though, I hope lots of people will read it. 4/5 stars
-Crimson Bound by Rosamond Hodge. This was a pretty good high fantasy retelling of Little Red Riding Hood. I didn't love it, but I liked it. 3/5 stars.
-Mad Miss Mimic by Sarah Henstra. Again, this was a so-so book for me. It was interesting though, which is why I finished it. 3 stars.
-Things We Know By Heart by Jessi Kirby. I loved this book! It was so sweet. 4/5 stars.
-I read the first two books of A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket. I am now foreseeing a love/hate relationship with this series. 4 stars.
-Need by Joelle Charbonneau. Honestly this book was disappointing. It was bad, but I didn't even like that much. 2/5 stars.
- Cruel Crown by Victoria Aveyard. This is the novella bind of Queen Song and Steel Scars. DANG THESE NOVELLAS WERE AMAZING!!!!!!! I did a review for it here: http://lifeofamirkwoodelf.blogspot.ca/2016/01/my-thoughts-and-feelings-on-cruel-crown.html
AND THOSE, DEAR CREAMPUFFS, WERE ALL THE BOOKS I READ. Here's to a happy reading month of February! Namarie!
